When the situation calls for a truly casual look, it is always a challenge for me to come up with a look that feels authentic. In summer, I find this task even more perplexing. For example, I do not own even one pair of shorts.
There are lots of jeans and tank tops in my wardrobe, but I feel most confident in them after I add heels and a blazer. Dressing to suit your personality helps everyone to feel more comfortable. Think of how miserable the man looks who has to wear a suit and tie for a particular function when he usually wears jeans and a tee with a ball cap.
I had some free time yesterday afternoon, so Mr. Mickey asked me to ride with him to make a delivery in Mountain City where we planned to have lunch later. His company, RMJ Distributing Co. serves all of the Tri-Cities area for industrial cleaning and packing supplies. “Dress for riding in a delivery van,” he said.
My solution to this style dilemma was to wear my Keds Triple Decker silver slip-on sneakers from Saks Off 5th. The tee and long tunic style shirt are from Chico’s about two years ago. The white pull on style jeans are by Tribal. The bag is from Express. I added a watch, ring, and pair of hoop earrings to complete the look.
Below is an older photo to show how I wore this tunic on another day when I was following my natural style tendencies.
If I show you something that you fall in love with, and it is no longer available online or in stores, don’t give up! Rarely, if ever worn items are often added to the “Shop My Closet” section of my shopping site. All of the new items I have recently added to the site are due to your requests.
When outdoors or riding in a vehicle for more than a few minutes, I apply sunscreen from Beautycounter found here. I want to prevent any further sun damage because more and more “wisdom” spots are starting to show up.
